The Blue: A Novel | Lucy Clarke
post image

Set on a ship in the open sea, surrounded only by #water. Hubbies sister gave it to me and said, I'd like it since I like books that give me the chills. Especially, she said, when you're afraid of deep water (I am).

I would've liked the book if it was more about the chills and the psychological effects and less about the main character whining about her love interest...

Fratelli d'anima | David Diop

Wow, what a book! Its intensity reminded me of Nothing New On The Western Front. In only sbout 150 pages Diop goes deep into what it means to fight in a war.

A sweet and funny tale about the Three Muscleteers. It's the second book but I've had had no troubles understanding the relationships. At the end the book gets serious indeed when the topic of the refugee crisis comes up. Krause did this very well. Interested parents could take this as a start to talk to their children about the happenings in the world.

Faserland | Christian Kracht

This is a very special book and not everybodys taste. I liked it the better the more I read, the more I learned about the character. Reading “Faserland“ is a journey through Germany but even more the main characters search for a home.

Heidi | Johanna Spyri

Heidi - one of the most famous stories set in the Swiss #mountains. I grew up not far from where the story takes place. But I had to become 30 years old to finally read the original story. The book was a gift from my mother who got it from her grandmother when she was a child ❤️📚

This book left me bewildered and confused. I'm not sure what to think about it and/or what the author wants to tell me. Therefore this book is just stuck inside my brain and refuses to get out.

I liked the idea and lookings of the book and it was fun to walk and discover all those real streets and buildings you meet in your favourite books.

But since there already are so many similar works this one could've been a bit more diverse and less eurocentric.

This one's from my TBR shelf. Well, actually from the TBR shelf in head where I have this big list named “Books that I should read some day“. It's about a pianist who walks out of his own #concert saying “That's it.“ The premise sounds promising.

Also, I'm not sure what's up with me and all the #Swiss writers I post about lately...

I wanted to add Kerouac, too, but I got my copy of "On the road" from the library ?

Also good luck to the awesome American soccer girls next Sunday. Fingers are crossed ? ??⚽

Oh, how I loved this one! This was actually my first audio book in English. I've always been afraid I wouldn't understand what's going on but everything went fine here. If this was a real game I'd play it! ❤

I read the book mostly because of its cover. The setting of #NewOrleans was very enjoyable, the story itself was so-so. If I come around the next part I might read it.

One of the reasons why I love the extended Star Wars universe is that it goes so much deeper. This book actually asks ethical questions. Is it okay to clone hundreds or more men and send them to fight? Are those human beings as well? Padawan Etain is about to find out...

My second book by Kazuo Ishiguro and while I didn't get into Never Let Me Go this one here was alright. I guess all in all Ishiguro isn't the writer for me but I'm glad I read it anyway.
